The Dezerian Assignment Code Name: Redkey is a verbosely named RPG game that presents some interesting and innovative ideas, albeit in a package that is strangely put together and confusing. It features "hi-res" graphics (EGA) and offers both first-person driving and top-view adventuring. Driving requires pressing keys in a confusing and unnecessary sequence to get started (see below, or read the included docs) and it's difficult to tell where you're going or what's going on. The top-view adventuring sections are equally puzzling, with slow controls and ambiguous graphics. Where am I and what am I doing? No guidance is provided. It looks like a lot of effort went into this but I'm a bit stumped as to what exactly is going on here, maybe you'll have more patience than I do!
Turn on Num Lock! See REDKEY.DOC in zip file for more info.
